Before we start

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

Ares Build Overview

Ares Build for Kodi is a very minimalist looking build, and it looks very clean. It’s not a bad build at all, it offers most things you could possibly want in regards to a Kodi build.

Ares Build has categories for Ares Project, Kids Zone, Movies, Music, Settings, Sports, In Theaters and TV Shows. It uses the Aeon Nox style, so it’s easy to use. On top of that, you can find add-ons below the menu, and quick access buttons above it.

This guide is for Kodi Krypton, and the steps below are listed for the Estuary skin. If you have any problems with this build, feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll reply.

Go back into Kodi, and press “Enter Pin” in the Ares Wizard. Enter the pin you received to get access to the build. You can scan the QR code or enter the given URL on your mobile too.
